JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — What was long expected is expected to be made official today: There will be no Minor League Baseball in 2020, according to sources with Action Sports Jax.
This announcement will put an end to the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp season before it even began.
Jumbo Shrimp owner Ken Babby released the following statement:
“The news that we will not have Jumbo Shrimp baseball at 121 Financial Ballpark is devastating. While we are disappointed there will be no Jumbo Shrimp baseball in 2020, we are looking forward to the many socially-distanced and safe events that continue to bring Affordable Family Fun to our community.”
Fans who have purchased individual game tickets for any game of the 2020 season will automatically receive a credit to their Jumbo Shrimp ticket account, according to a release from the team. That credit may be utilized for any 2021 Jumbo Shrimp ticket purchase as tickets, season tickets or mini-plans are released for sale.
A 2021 season schedule and promotional schedule will be announced at a later date, prior to individual game tickets going on sale for the 2021 season.
